    IRONY : COVID & FREE SPEECH

    It is interesting that the suppression of free speech means that young left-wing zealots ensure that any doubts about the Covid Vaccines are suppressed. They are also those most likely to be vaccinated. The main people who experience ‘excess deaths’ are at the younger end. The conclusion is that the people suppressing free speech about Covid vaccines are the most likely to die as a result.

    Neat.

    Perhaps they should be nominated for the Darwin Award!

    As I understand it : Russian oil production costs 10 dollars/barrel. The oil companies keep 25 dollars a barrel and all the other money goes to fund the Russian government.

    MACRON’S SINGLE GLOBAL ORDER

    A World Government. The only fair democratic way to appoint representatives would be by country population :

    China – 1.44 billion.
    India – 1.40 billion.
    United States – 334 million. …
    Indonesia – 278 million. …
    Pakistan – 227 million. …
    Brazil – 214 million. …
    Nigeria – 214 million. …
    Bangladesh – 167 million. …
    Russia – 146 million. …
    Mexico – 131 million. …

    Errm! Perhaps not.

    I am sure Macron means a government controlled by the West, but I am not sure how that could be implemented. By GDP perhaps?

    Found Ballots

    In the 2020 election there were the two famous USB sticks which appeared many hours after the polls closed, both with over 100,000 votes 100% for Biden. Statistically impossible.

    After the polls close it will be known who has voted. More importantly who has NOT. All that is needed is to ‘vote’ on their behalf.

    Did the GOP check with any of the ‘voters’ on these sticks to ask if they actually voted?

    MUSK & THE EU

    I think Musk could make it awkward for the EU, for example asking them to pay for all the costs of the censors, or offering to feed all tweets to an EU censorship bureau.

    Failing that he could shut down Twitter in the EU with a link to a document explaining why he shut it down, a list of all those demanding censorship, a complete list of all censorship requirements, and a suggestion that they use VPN to access Twitter without censorship.

    He could also give a list of all companies which have withdrawn advertising but saying that Twitter users should ‘not’ boycott them!

    ‘Earth can regulate its own temperature’

    Yes, obviously.

    Life has existed for around 3.5 billion years – it is not a fragile system. There has to be feedback loops to ensure its continuity.

    For billions of years it was mainly cyanobacteria which created stromatolites and a poisonous [to them] waste gas of oxygen. For 500 million years this oxygen was consumed by most of the Earth’s iron turning to rust, but eventually it built up in the atmosphere.

    Then came multicellular creatures – the Cambrian explosion [when CO2 was fourteen times more than today]. Life never looked back although almost all species that ever existed are now extinct [99%]. Extinction is just an opportunity for more successful species.

    Reconstructions of global temperature over billions of years shows there is a definite upper limit, several degrees warmer than today. This is most likely down to water vapour, especially in the form of clouds. Higher temperatures means more clouds which increases the Earth’s albedo, reflecting more sunlight back into space and keeping the Earth cooler.

    We have a reference point – the Moon, where surface temperatures range from 100C to -150C, but Earth is built to keep temperatures in a much more tolerable range.

    “The strike has resulted in the neutralisation of the production capacities for nuclear weaponry.”

    The last threat by Zelensky before the Russians invaded was that Ukraine would create nuclear weapons. This was not an idle threat as they had the means of production. I believe that this finally prompted Russia to take action.

    MH17

    Within minutes of the aircraft being hit Ukraine claimed it was brought down by the rebels

    The rebels did have a captured BUK missile launcher, but did not have the radar and missile control units so it would have been impossible for them to down the aircraft.

    The US can detect any missile launch from the Earth’s surface and found no evidence [at the time] of a missile launch in Ukraine.

    A BUK missile would leave an exhaust visible for 60 miles and no one noticed any such trail.

    Just before the incident a Spanish air traffic controller working in Kiev tweeted that they were going to ‘bring down a plane’. He ‘disappeared’.

    MH17 normally flew over southern Ukraine but on THAT day it was directed over the war zone.

    The tape with the conversation between Kiev ATC and MH17 was seized.

    The UK recovered the voice data from the black box but never released it.

    After looking at a large chunk of aircraft debris an OSCE observer said it was full of bullet holes.

    The crash investigation was carried out in the US when it should have been done by Malaysia.

    The most fundamental question is what would the rebels gain by bringing down a passenger aircraft? Ask any normal person and the answer would be ‘nothing’. There is absolutely no reason to do it.

    The ONLY people who could possibly gain are the Ukraine authorities as a false flag propaganda exercise.

    The most plausible explanation of what happened is that a Ukrainian fighter fired an air-to-air missile, which failed to bring down the aircraft, and it was finished off using cannon fire.

    I used to think of Holland as a civiised country but this shows they are as scummy as the rest. They serve a huge injustice to all those Dutch who died.

    The Poles seem to hate Russia even more than the Ukrainian Nazis. I can understand them hating Communist Russia but I have no idea why they have a hatred bordering on insanity for the current regime.

    They are willing to support the Ukrainian Nazis who venerate those responsible for the murder of 60,000 Poles in WWII.

    When these missiles fell their first thought was to try and invoke war between NATO and Russia even before any investigation had been done! [Hence the ‘insanity’ comment.]

    I would not be surprised to find out that Ukraine fired the missiles deliberately in order to create an escalation.

    The US is ‘expecting a winter fighting pause’!

    A bizarre statement considering how Russia has used winter for their most effective fighting. They think of winter as their friend.

    Temperatures in Ukraine can drop to -20C during winter. Russia builds weapons able to stand low temperatures as standard. Are western weapons equally capable.

    The Ukraine troops will have a miserable time, dependent on a steady stream of food and fuel which may have problems getting through.

    MUSK COULD HAVE IT ALL!

    If Musk is successful in opening up Twitter he could look to do the same in other areas.

    What if he started a Youtube equivalent which does does not demonetise users or ban videos.

    What if he starts a Facebook equivalent which does not censor or ban users.

    What if he starts a Paypal equivalent which does not steal people’s money or ban organisations.

    What if he starts a Patreon equivalent which does not ban users.

    He may [initially] not have a great many content providers but they could each attract large followings making them commercially worth much more than the outlay in costs.

    METHANE

    Clare Daly shows how ‘believers’ lose all intelligence when talking about the environment. They do not question but just blindly spout the dogma.

    It took me a few seconds to find out that methane is only 2 parts per MILLION in the atmosphere and so it is not worth spending a single dollar in ‘fighting’ it.

    It surprised how little methane there is as it is a byproduct made by microbes as they recycle organic matter, which will be occurring over most of the Earth. A different mechanism creates vast quantities of methane below the Earth’s surface.

    I would have thought that 1 part in 500,000 would be about a day’s supply. Methane is extremely flammable so I would not expect it to last in the atmosphere for long, and it obviously doesn’t.

    It is disturbing that something that is so obviously ‘not an issue’ has joined the list of boogy-men created to frighten us into making sacrifices which diminish our lives.

    Going Nuclear

    Recently Russia claimed that a nuclear weapon would be exploded in Ukraine and blamed on Russia. Russia would know the weapon would have been supplied by the West and would assume it would be used as a pretext to send a nuclear strike against Russia. It would not be unlikely that Russia would decide to strike first. Instant WWIII!

    A ‘Dirty Bomb’ could conceivably be created by the Ukraine without outside help so could be regarded as less threatening. If carried out it would depend on how severe the result was. It may be that Russia would feel the need to respond, perhaps by nuking Kiev. The West would then have a short time to decide whether to start WWIII or not.

    If the result of the dirty bomb was extreme then Russia may feel the need to go further. Russia has claimed that the UK is involved and Russia promised their first nuke would be aimed at London, so they may feel the need to target London. Again the West would need to decide whether to sacrifice themselves to avenge an attack on London.

    In Syria Russia often published details of planned false flag operations in order to make it suspicious if they still went ahead. I assume this is what they are trying to do here, hopefully with success.

    It is incredible that any of the above is plausible. The risks far outweigh any possible rewards.

    Ursula von der Leyen – Soros Puppet?

    Whenever Ursula von der Leyen is mentioned I keep thinking back to her strange election. France and Germany had got together and agreed on their candidate. Suddenly their candidate was nowhere and this woman was plucked from obscurity to become president [much to the relief of the people who worked for her!] Her views strongly coincide with Soros and quite a few people think it was his doing.

    Developing deadly strains

    Covid is not the only thing :

    World’s Deadliest Virus: ‘Spanish Flu’ Reverse Engineered, Recreated

    It is not just the possibility of accidental release, it is also the possibility of deliberate release!

    Some people, like Bill Gates, think the human population should be less than a billion. What if they had the opportunity to ‘make it so’. Ebola was touted as one of the best ways to reduce the human population, then three different strains appeared in three different countries around the same time.

    The US has dozens of biowarfare labs dotted around the world, like the ones in Ukraine. Who knows what horrors are being created? Again, the worry is accidental or deliberate release.

    Is there ANY oversight? If brief descriptions of all of the lines of research were presented to the public how many would be approved and how many would be regarded as ‘crimes against humanity’!

    Indonesia makes a good point. If local currencies are not really used outside the country then the exchange rate is easy to manipulate. Some years ago Turkey’s GDP fell 1% and the Lira then fell 15%!

    Russia’s insistence of payment in Rubles has shown what a dramatic effect it can have on a local currency, but how many countries have goods so needed that they can demand payment in their currency?

    I was wondering if China could use its trillions of dollars to buy out dollar debt from various countries and replace them with debts in the local currency, and have payments in the local currency.

    In politics does ‘left’ and ‘right’ mean anything?

    in the US :

    The left are pro police state, with censorship and personal surveillance.
    The left are against free speech.
    The left are pro-war.
    The left do not object to the accumulation of wealth by the 0.1%.
    The left are keen to do the bidding of oligarchs like Gates and Soros.
    The left are keen to promote COVID vaccines to fill the coffers of Big Pharma, even though they cause death and injury to [mostly] Democrats.

    Are they DINOs?

    I think the confusion is that politics is a wheel, so the extreme left are adjacent to the extreme right politically, with similar aims and objectives.

    According to the Collins Dictionary, fascism “is a set of right-wing political beliefs that includes strong controls of society and the economy by the state”, but communism is a set of left-wing political beliefs that includes strong controls of society and the economy by the state.

    I like the quote attributed to JK Galbraith : “Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it’s just the opposite.”

    PLASTIC PEOPLE

    In the UK recycling centres often bale up plastic [using plastic] and ship it to Sweden where it is burnt in incinerators to produce electricity. As one person commented ‘Why can’t we do that here?’. Burning plastic produces toxic fumes so the incinerator must have efficient scrubbers to remove them.

    Burning plastic removes it from the environment, produces electricity and remove the toxins they can produce. It is more energy efficient to burn plastic bags and make new ones but activists have insisted they must be recycled which is why they are shipped thousands of miles away. A TV program about this showed that some of this plastic waste can be commercially recycled but some is not and is just dumped in the open. One shot showed most of one pile were shopping bags from the UK.

    I think all domestic waste should be incinerated rather than go to landfill. Even the ash may be able to be recycled in breeze blocks or added to tarmac for road surfacing. Existing landfill sites could also be used as fuel.

    When it comes to plastic waste in the ocean there was an article on TAE some time ago which claimed that 80% originated from Chinese rivers and 10% from the Nile [If I remember correctly]. It should be easy to prevent this waste entering the oceans.

    Another area of concern is food waste. It could be fed to pigs but that is banned because there is a remote chance it could contain foot and mouth disease. It would need heat treating first, but it may be possible to do this using waste heat from the incinerators. This waste heat could also be used for district heating to further maximise energy efficiency, depending on the siting of the incinerator. The pig manure could be used in biodigesters to produce methane and the leftovers used as fertiliser.

    The technology exists to deal with waste, and an integrated approach could increase the benefits.

    This article shows how weak Germany actually is. It has no friends and any power it had in Europe will soon be gone.

    Hungary and Poland have been given a hard time by the EU in recent years. It is well known that Soros wants regime change in these countries and I am never quite sure how much influence he has in the EU.

    PUTIN

    Replacing Putin has been an aim of the West for years, but who would replace him?

    RT had an article a some time ago where they looked at all the popular politicians who could possibly replace him. One was on the left [Communist] but all the others were on the far right.

    Putin has been incredibly restrained in his dealings with the West despite massive provocation. The article concluded that after Putin Russia would become far more aggressive.

    Nuclear Weapons in Poland

    The Cuban missile crisis has always been portrayed as Russia threatening to install nuclear missiles in Cuba and then backing down.

    It is only recently that I read that the US had nuclear missiles in Turkey at the time and that they were subsequently removed.

    This indicates that Russia used Cuba to make a point, successfully.

    Russia has said it would use nuclear weapons as a last resort. I interpret this to mean that if Russia was being attacked and conventional weapons were not adequate for defense then they use all means available to protect Russia, including nuclear.

    If Poland did host nuclear weapons what would Russia’s strategy be?

    While the UK directly uses only a tiny amount of Russian gas it is still indirectly dependent on Russian gas. It has gas interconnects to Norway and Belgium and the currents situation means these supplies are limited and expensive.

    The UK also has electrical interconnects with Europe, especially France. Again supplies will be reduced and expensive.

    Are Green Parties ‘Green’?

    Green policies don’t seem to make sense.

    Spending hundreds of billions on fossil fuel to create ‘renewable’ energy. These energy sources have to be replaced every 10 to 30 years and are difficult to recycle, so mostly aren’t. This means using more fossil fuel to provide a constant source of new materials. The only thing ‘renewable’ is the power source : sunlight and wind.

    The current ‘green’ push is for fully electric cars at the same time as they are trying to close down every reliable source of electricity! The German Green Party is still insisting on closing the last remaining nuclear plants this winter. Lithium batteries only last 10 to 20 years and are difficult to recycle, so mostly aren’t. This means using more fossil fuel to provide a constant source of new materials. The higher cost of fossil fuels increases the cost of these raw materials – lithium has tripled in price over the past year.

    The European power grid was built as a stable source of electricity with built in redundancy. Like Jenga you can remove several pieces and it will still be stable, BUT at some point it will completely collapse. We appear to very close to that point.

    Some years ago India banned green parties when they realised their influence was being used to prevent Indian industries from competing with US companies. Are Europe’s Green Parties similar trojan horses?

    There is a fascinating chart on TAE [July 7th] showing CO2 levels through the ages. It was FOURTEEN times higher in the Cambrian era!

    It fell over 75% in the Carboniferous era for an interesting reason. Trees invented a new material : lignin. It took over 60 million years for nature to come up with something to recycle it. Trees grew and died but did not rot and ended up forming coal deposits.

    The chart shows that at the moment we have the lowest of CO2 ever. Plants grown in atmosphere of 800 ppm CO2 are HUGE. If CO2 levels doubled there would be much more vegetation, more food, more life.

    The seas will NOT become acidic. They are extremely alkaline and additional CO2 will reduce the alkalinity slightly. Above a certain level CO2 reacts directly with seawater to form insoluble carbonates – it will become a carbon sink.

    Doubling CO2 would literally mean the greening of the Earth.

    Climate ‘Change’

    Siberia hit 100 Fahrenheit recently – so did Gnome Alaska in 1915

    Russia had a problem with crops some years ago due to a kink in the jetstream – it happened previously in 1889

    Australia’s Victoria province has floods every 21 years. It was predicted by climate activists that they would stop coming. They build desalination plants and filled the reservoir meant to store floodwater. The floods came and people died

    California has had droughts lasting 1,000 years. It only became wetter as Europeans were landing on the west coast.

    The ‘predictions’ are that it will become hotter/colder/wetter/drier somewhere sometime. Wow! How vague can you get? Computer models written by activists are hardly a reliable source of information, especially when they refuse to share the source-code so it can be checked by grown-ups.

    The bad weather may be unusual but has normally also happened in the past meaning it is not reliant on the current composition of the atmosphere. Predicting there will be bad weather and blaming ‘x’ is total garbage science.

    The ONLY evidence of ‘man-made’ global warming is that between 1970 and 1998 both CO2 levels and global warming were increasing. In 1998 global warming stopped, showing that the warming was a correlation and NOT causation.

    A new ‘man-made’ disaster had to be invented : Climate Change. This is normally just unusual weather that has happened before.

    It has been likened to a religion and the followers believe ANY prediction without the need for any proof [or intelligence!]. When predictions fail it is not a problem as new predictions will be made. The belief is based on ignorance so is incredibly difficult to argue against as they do not realise how ignorant they are. They ‘know’ they are correct so deny any facts which contradict the dogma. Unless people question they won’t find out.

    Some say we are now living in a new Dark Age where science just becomes a matter of belief. Even the basic fact of male or female is now just a matter of belief to some.

    Sabotage of NS1 & NS2

    This was an act of war, principally against Germany and carried out by their ‘allies’.

    This is part of the continuing isolation of Europe. It started in earnest when Russia reclaimed Crimea. The EU was more than happy to harm EU industries and farmers by imposing sanctions. This year it has gone into overdrive and isolation from Russia is nearing completion.

    The first shots have been fired to isolate the EU from China. The US has been trying hard to provoke China into invading Taiwan. If they are successful then they will demand the EU cease all trade with China, and it will! Iran is already in the bag.

    This will leave Europe as an impoverished backwater and remove a commercial competitor to the US, along with Russia, China and others.

    As a trading block is forming between Russia and China it is attracting other countries to join. The World could end up as the West and the rest!

    Sabotage of NS1 & NS2

    It was not a simple matter of dropping bombs off a ship. It would require knowing the precise locations of the pipelines so a survey of the seabed would be required. The pipelines would be in a trench so may require the trench being excavated to expose the pipelines to make any explosions effective. In short, it was a technical challenge which could have only been carried out by a few countries.

    It would not have been done without the approval of the US, if not by the US itself

    It will have been done by an ‘ally’ of Germany at the very least

    There was an increasing chance that Germany would have becomes desperate enough to accept gas from NS2 which has now been stopped. Expect other pipelines to Germany to be blocked.

    Most people vote AGAINST parties rather than FOR parties. People in Europe have seen their current leaders sacrifice them to support a failed policy against Russia [and Climate Change].

    The main parties seem to be aligned so if you are worried about your life being destroyed for no good reason then you can only look to fringe parties who are willing to be different. In this case it is right wing parties.
